is talking about fixing education to tinker with the tax code and give teachers special tax rates if the students do this, tax credit for this and that. the only way to fix education is school vouchers. so to me, they are both an example of, in the london school of economics professor, talking about the tinkerers, the people who see the economy as a great big engine and they are going to go in with screw drivers and tirvegger and fine-tune. it i am afraid the democrats are guilty of haand the republicans are there. they have different constituencies they are trying to support. >> greta: all right. if we were talking a year from now and assume two hypothetical, first one, president obama is re-elected. second one, governor romney wins. a year from now, are you -- which presidency is going to likely -- are you likely to hire more people under? >> well that's a tough one because -- i think the right way to understand this is, you go to a dentist and you say, i have a tooth ache. he gives you novacane and you say, no, no, i have a cavity. you have a root canal. he gaves novacane. it's
for speaking out against islamic extremists and for promoting education for girls. she's been a target for the taliban because of outspoken views against the group. joining us is the attorney and director of the law fair project, brook goldstein, good morning to you, brook. >> good morning. >> dave: a horrific story. unfortunately, this is what focuses some attention worldwide on what these terror groups are doing, i mean, to children. what needs to be done? >> well, first of all, the issue of the deliberate targeting of innocent muslim children by slammist terrorist groups has gone way underreported and that it takes a shooting of a 14-year-old girl to focus world attention on this. >> alisyn: let's talk about the 14-year-old girl. she's extraordinary. she had been a vocal advocate for girls education in a place in the valley in pakistan where that is not necessarily a popular view, certainly by this taliban and she even started a blog. i mean, tell us why is she's such a great symbol? >> well, she's done something remarkable. she's managed to bring together the pakistani community wh
and used it against them on education policy. but during the section on he entitlements he didn't necessarily seem to be at his strongest but still certainly much stronger than the president. >> chris: i want to ask you about a moment that you didn't bring up that has got and lot of attention. let's take a look at this one. >> i'm sorry, jim, i'm going to stop the subsidy to pbs and other things. i love big bird and i actually like you, too. i'm not going to keep on spending money on things to borrow money from china to pay for are it. >> was that smart as a way to show that he is serious about cutting spend or is it always a mistake to take on big bird? >> well, big bird is pretty popular but maybe the president would say big bird didn't build his own nest, i don't know. but i think that it is -- it probably maybe not going after big bird but is certainly pbs and public broadcasting is popular in terms of taking them on in the spending side. i don't think he was going down the wrong path. maybe not so much with big bird. >> chris: a couple of minutes left. i want to look forwar
million people watch that had debate to become educated on who they want to choose. and i think the debates do matter. whether or not the momentum stays through, the next one is a town haloform at, then the third -- hall, then the third one is -- it will be interesting to see out polls stay over time. if you look at one point in time, usual usually you can't say how this will be wednesday night. >> steve: brian, to your point about how the post game show with the obama team has been to call mitt romney a liar, it just goes to show you how desperate they are. there was a "new york times" story yesterday that said that ten minutes before the debate was up, they had a conference call. they figured out okay, we'll start calling him a liar. what's interesting is, though, why didn't the president of the united states on the stage go ahead and call mitt romney out live on television? mitt romney saw some instances where the president was distorting his image and his ideas regarding the $5 trillion worth of tax cuts and mr. romney said mr. president, that's simply not the case. barak ob
